WGLT and the League of Women Voters are teaming up again for local debates. Nothing is scheduled for anybody running except mayoral candidates:
Former County Clerk candidate and current employee of the City of Bloomington thinks all of you who sacrificed to send your kids to college should pay the bill for black women. Once they graduate their earning potential is greater than those with no post high school education, but everyone should pay for their education anyway. Richards used to be the Democrat Party Chair in McLean County – the party of unity.
Patrick Lawler: The citizens want representatives that make their life better. They want lower taxes and roads that don’t wreck their cars. Your nonsense and those of Carrillo and Crabill’s gang do nothing to improve Bloomington. How about fixing the pension system? No other elected officials have the guts to declare they are bankrupting people who won’t be getting one. Oh, I forgot you are looking forward to getting one, so that won’t be you. Does your tweet mean when you teach Social Studies you ignore truth?
If you thought the impeachment trial that violates the Constitution and is therefore meaningless will permanently get rid of Trump:
Besides, even the FBI has admitted Trump wasn’t responsible for the pre-planned attack on the capital. Since running on killing jobs, making insulin more expensive, destroying energy independence, open borders so illegals can take jobs from low skilled citizens, and destroying women sports wouldn’t play well – they need to divert your attention to the useless. Sounds just like the local socialists.
A reader sent this to me:
Spookily, this was written over 70 years ago but could have been written today:
′′One young devil asked the old man: “How did you manage to bring so many souls to hell?”
The old devil answered: “I instilled fear in them!”
Answers the youngster: “Great job! And what were they afraid of? Wars? Hunger?”
Answers the man: “No, they were afraid of the disease!”
For this youngster: “Does this mean they didn’t get sick? Are they not dead? There was no rescue for them?”
The old man answered: “but no . . . they got sick, died, and the rescue was there.”
The young devil, surprised, answered: “Then I don’t understand???”
The old man answered: “You know they believed the only thing they have to keep at any cost is their lives. They stopped hugging, greeting each other. They’ve moved away from each other. They gave up all social contacts and everything that was human! Later they ran out of money, lost their jobs, but that was their choice because they were afraid for their lives, that’s why they quit their jobs without even having bread. They believed blindly everything they heard and read in the papers. They gave up their freedoms, they didn’t leave their own homes literally anywhere. They stopped visiting family and friends. The world turned into such a concentration camp, without forcing them into captivity. They accepted everything!!! Just to live at least one more miserable day . . . And so living, they died every day!!! And that’s how it was very easy for me to take their miserable souls to hell….. ′′
